CaesarStone Announces First Lifetime Warranty in the Quartz Countertop Business

Van Nuys, CA (Feb. 14th, 2008) - As CaesarStone was the first manufacturer in quartz surfaces, it is now the first in its industry to offer a lifetime warranty. Previously warranted for 10 years, CaesarStone has decided to provide this added value to all homeowners buying their high quality countertops, in any color or texture available.

"Offering a lifetime warranty was an easy transition for us", said Arik Tendler, President of CaesarStone US. "Basically, CaesarStone has always been made to last for a very long time. Our factory has raised the bar in all standards of manufacturing practices, guided by ISO 14001 environmental standards, the highest standard available. The dedication, devotion and professional training of everyone world-wide who interacts with our product, from the factory to transportation to fabrication, assures that all our products achieve the highest standard of quality control. Everyone at CaesarStone is part of this commitment - its part of our way of life. Because of this devotion to excellence, we have the confidence to offer the first lifetime warranty in the countertop business".

CaesarStone's new Lifetime Warranty applies to every new CaesarStone countertop sold to homeowners and fabricated by authorized CaesarStone fabricators. It is non-transferable and valid for homeowners as long as they live in the house in which it has been installed, and it has been properly cleaned and maintained as recommended by CaesarStone. It is not valid for any commercial installation. See the CaesarStone Lifetime Warranty online for more details at www.caesarstoneus.com.
